More than 150,000 people flocked to the city of Detroit for the 33rd annual African World Festival this weekend.

The event was held at and around the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and featured vendors from all over the world.

The smell of Shea butter and the sound of authentic African instruments filled the air.

The African World Festival also had live music featuring Julian Marley, The Clark Sisters and more.

Also located nearby is the Detroit Association of Women’s Clubs [DAWC] and they also took place in the festival. They had vendors, authentic furniture and artwork inside of their building and encouraged everyone to check out their organization.

The event is annual and the Street Team can’t wait to return next year.
